Cultural & Natural History of the Little Tennessee River

Saturday, April, 24 


Hop in a boat and stay a while with us on the languid Little T for this springtime float. We'll float through one of America's most cultural rich and biologically diverse stretches of water with author-historian Brent Martin as flapping herons lead us north. (moderate paddling)


Wildcraft Kitchen Comes to Cowee

Saturday, May 15

Springtime brings a delicious array of wild edible greens, buds, shoots, flowers, and fungi. Join us for a half-day nature immersion with Cara-Lee Langston of Wildcraft Kitchen where you can learn to safely identify and ethically-harvest wild foods and medicinal herbs. We first met Cara-Lee when we took a class on wildcrafted liquers with Botanologos and have hoped to bring her to Cowee ever since! 10AM-2PM (moderate walking required) 


In Bloom: Silky Camellia 

Saturday, May 29

The Silky Camellia (Stewartia malacodendron), native to the SE coastal plain of north America, is endangered in some states but LOVES it here. With the help of our plant-mentor Jack Johnston, we've cared for thriving specimens for over a decade. These 'climate experiments' are yeilding beautiful results, which we will discuss as we celebrate this elegant shrub. (moderate walking)
